PREFACE. 



On the 5th of February, 1684, Edward Rish worth made the 
first record in the volume which he marked on a fly leaf, " The 
fourth Book of Records for Deeds & c in the County of York." 
The last record, in the regular series, was made by Joseph Ham- 
mond, July 25, 1699. Four conveyances were afterward record- 
ed, in 1700 and 1702, on pages previously left blank 1 ; and three 
supplementary records were affixed to the proper documents in 
1700, 1718 and 1719 2 ; but the regular series ended in July, 1699. 
The book was in use for fifteen years. 

During five of these years, New England was the scene of in- 
tense political excitement, which culminated in revolution. The 
charter of the Massachusetts Bay company was annulled by a de- 
cree in chancery in 1684 ; but the reorganization which would 
naturally have followed, was delayed nearly two years by the 
death of Charles II, the accession of James II, and the rebellion 
of the Duke of Monmouth. During this interval, the government 
under the charter continued by its own momentum. In May, 
1686, Joseph Dudley was proclaimed president of the council of 
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine and Narrnganset, and in 
December Sir Edmund Andros arrived at Boston in the character 
of captain-general and governor-general of the same territory and 
also of Plymouth. There was no provision in the new govern- 
ment for a general assembly of representatives of the people. 
Public affairs were to be administered with the advice of the 
council appointed by the king; but the commonalty could be 
heard only by petition. Thomas Danforth had been president of 
Maine under the Massachusetts charter, but his authority now 
ceased. Edward Tyng of Falmouth, Francis Champernon of 
Kittery and Bartholomew Gedney of Salem, were appointed coun- 
cillors for Maine. 3 The county of Cornwall, east of the Kenne- 
bec river, was still a part of New York ; and thither, in 1686,

sided at York. Champernon did not take his seat in the council.

Governor Dongan of New York sent John Palmer, a member of 
his council, with John West as deputy secretary, to reestablish the 
land titles and especially to provide for the regular collection of 
quit-rents and customs. Edward Randolph, member of the New 
England council and secretary of the board, was charged with 
similar duties. His deputy secretary and register for Maine, ap- 
pointed in 1686, was Thomas Scottow, son of Joshua Scottow of 
Scarborough. 1 Probate business was administered by the govern- 
or through his deputies, and appeals might be taken to the gov- 
ernor in person. 2 In 1687 Joshua Scottow was appointed surro- 
gate for Maine, and his son was designated for register of the new 
probate court. 8 A member of the council always presided at the 
county courts, and was assisted by resident justices of the peace. 
Appeals were heard in Boston by a superior court consisting of a 
majority of the council. Dudley, as president of the council, be- 
came chief justice of the superior court. It was ordered that all 
public records of the former governments should be brought to 
Boston. 

Before the end of the year 1687, Governor Andros had secured 
the submission of Rhode Island and Connecticut to his authority. 
In April, 1688, he was commissioned governor of the Dominion 
of New England, meaning all the English territory north of the 
40th parallel of latitude, including of course New York and the 
Jerseys, and extending eastward to the river St. Croix. Under 
the new commission he had 42 councillors — John Palmer among 
the rest ; but five constituted a quorum, and the governor's au- 
thority was practically absolute. Legislative, judicial and execu- 
tive powers were all vested in his will. The people chafed under 
this arbitrary government. They resented the exaction of fees 
for new patents and quit-rents for the enjoyment of their lands. 
So far as they could, they evaded the acts of trade and naviga- 
tion, which obstructed their commerce. They watched with keen 
interest the ferment in the mother country. They suspected An- 
dros of a plan to hold New England for King James in any case 
even if the sceptre should be wrested from the king. They 
thought he was negotiating for this purpose with the French and 
their Indian allies. At last, on the 4th of April, 1689, they heard

that William of Orange had landed in England. On the 18th of 
April they rose, seized and imprisoned Andros and 25 of his 
principal officers, — Randolph, Palmer, West, Dudley and others, — ■ 
and reestablished the governments which had been dissolved in 
1686 and 1687. 

In Maine, Danforth was restored to the office of president and 
Charles Frost, Francis Hooke, Edward Tyng, John Davis, Joshua 
Scottow, Samuel Wheelwright and John Wincoll were reap- 
pointed councillors. These temporary arrangements were ap- 
proved by King William, and continued until the charter of 1691 
passed the seals. By that instrument Maine, Cornwall, Massa- 
chusetts and Plymouth were consolidated in one royal province, 
called the province of Massachusetts Bay. The governor, lieu- 
tenant governor and secretary were to be appointed by the king. 
The council was to be chosen annually by the general court. The 
house of representatives was to be chosen by the people in their 
towns. Maine was to have three councillors, and Job Alcock and 
Samuel Donnell of York and Samuel Heyman of Berwick were 
named in the charter for the first council. These names were 
proposed by the Rev. Increase Mather, who was the agent of Mas- 
sachusetts in London when the charter was granted. His ac- 
quaintance in Maine appears to have been limited. At the first 
election, Alcock and Heyman were dropped and Francis Hooke 
and Charles Frost were elected to their places. Sylvanus Davis 
was designated for Cornwall. He lived at Falmouth, but owned 
lands on the eastern side of the Kennebec and was consequently 
qualified though not a resident of the territory which he was to 
represent. The charter was brought over by Sir William Phips, 
the first governor, and the provincial government was inaugurated 
May 14, 1692. Sir William died in London, Feb. 18, 1695. The 
administration was continued by the lieutenant governor, William 
Stoughton. Richard, earl of Bellomont, was appointed governor 
in November, 1697, but did not arrive in Boston until May 20, 
1699. 

During the ten years from 1689 until 1699, the war known as 
King William's war had raged in Maine. James Stuart arrived 
on the coast of Ireland in March, 1689, with a French fleet and 
French troops, to recover the crown which William of Orange 
had accepted from the Westminster convention a month before. 
War between England and France was proclaimed in Boston on 



8 Preface. 

the 7th of December, 1689, but the declaration lagged more than 
a year behind the fact. The French resented the intrusion of 
New England fishermen upon the Acadian fishing grounds and the 
meddling of New York buyers with the fur trade on the great 
lakes. The dispute about the fur trade had ended in hostil- 
ities between the French and the western Indians, and in 1688 
Canada was invaded by the fierce Iroquois. At the same time, 
the eastern tribes, encouraged by the French, drove out the Eng- 
lish planters on the Sheepscot and the Kennebec, and broke up 
the settlement at North Yarmouth. In 1689 the stockade at Pern- 
aquid was burned and the country east of Falmouth was aban- 
doned to the savage enemy. In 1690 the French themselves took 
part in the conflict. Parties of French and Indians destroyed the 
plantation at Salmon Falls, in Berwick, and burned Fort Loyal in 
Falmouth, leaving the town desolate. The people of Scarbor- 
ough, Saco and Cape Porpoise fled to Wells, which became the 
frontier town. Troops were sent from Massachusetts and Ply- 
mouth, and Major Robert Pike, of Salisbury, then 74 years old, 
was appointed commander-in-chief of all the English forces east 
of the Merrimac. Major Elisha Hutchinson, of Boston, was as- 
sociated with Pike in November, for the negotiation of a truce 
with the Indians, which was accomplished, but hostilities were 
renewed in the spring of 1691. Wells was beset; the settle- 
ment at Cape Neddick was laid in ashes. Major Pike, worn out 
with anxiety and responsibility, fell ill in September, and Major 
Hutchinson succeeded him in the chief command, which he held 
until Governor Phips became ex officio commander of all the pro- 
vincial forces in May, 1692. 1 In February of that year, a great 
part of York was burned, and in June Wells was attacked but 
was successfully defended. In August the governor proceeded in 
person to Pemaquid, where he ordered a stone fort to be built. 
The work was finished in a few months, and in 1693 a fortress, 
also of stone, was erected on the right bank of the Saco, near the 
fails. The Indians were now closely pressed by the rangers, and 
j)rofessed to be tired of the war, but in 1694 they rallied and pen- 
etrated to Kittery, the last town in Maine. There were no oper- 
tions in 1695 on a large scale, but the whole country was infested 
by prowling savages and about 40 English people were killed or

carried into captivity. Among the captives, Major Joseph Ham- 
mond of Kittery was perhaps the most distinguished. In 1696 
the new fort at Pemaquid was taken and demolished. Peace was 
concluded between the French and English in 1697 ; but the In- 
dian war continued during the year 1698, and was ended at last 
by the treaty signed at Mare Point in Casco bay, Jan. 7, 1699. 

The confusion of the times is reflected in the records now printed. 
Although the fourth book was in use from 1684 till 1699, it was 
not in continuous use. From 1687 until 1689, the register used 
the book now numbered sixth. From 1690 until 1696, the records 
were continued in what is now the fifth book, and from 1696 till 
1699 the register returned to the fourth book. The records of the 
fifteen years are thus scattered through three volumes. The re- 
gisters during this period were Edward Rishworth, from 1684 to 
1686; Thomas Scottow, from 1686 to 1689; John Wincoll, from 
1689 to 1694; and Joseph Hammond, senior, from 1694 to 1699. 

When Rishworth wrote his last official line in June, 1686, he 
had been recorder of the province for nearly 33 years. He was 
first appointed in October, 1651, and had held the office continu- 
ously, except in 1668 and 1669, when Peter Weare occupied the 
place. He was now an old man. His wife's name appears for the 
last time in the volumes now printed, under the date 1675. 1 She 
doubtless died before 1682, when he conveyed his dwelling and 
lands in York to his son-in-law, John Sayward, for £60, to be de- 
voted mainly to the payment of his debts, receiving also Sayword's 
bond for an annuity of £6 and free use of a lower room in the 
house with "comfortable diet," fire wood and keeping for a horse. 2 
Sayward married Rishworth's daughter Mary. After her hus- 
band's death she married again and was Mrs Mary Hall when she 
filed the inventory of her father's estate, Feb. 25, 1691. 3 The- 
estate was valued by Abraham Preble and Matthew Austin, at 
£39. It was a year after Rishworth's death, when York was 
burned by the French and Indians in February, 1692. His son- 
in-law, Mr. Dummer, the. minister of York, was slain, and his 
daughter, Mrs. Lydia Dummer, was borne away to captivity and 
death. This horror, Rishworth was mercifully spared. 

Thomas Scottow, son of Joshua Scottow, merchant, was born 
in Boston, June 30, 1659, and named for an uncle who once lived 
on the City hall lot in School street, and sold it to the town in

1645. 1 Thomas the younger was graduated at Harvard college 
in 1677, at the foot of a class of six. His father had bought 
Abraham Jocelyn's farm on Black Point river in Scarborough, in 
1660, and in 1663 had advanced £310 to Henry Jocelyn, taking a 
mortgage on lands, buildings and other property, at Black Point* 
In 1666 the debt had increased to £484, and was secured by a new 
mortgage covering specifically the Cammock patent of 1500 acres 
at Black Point with 750 acres adjacent granted directly to Joce- 
lyn by Sir Ferdinando Gorges, and the neighboring islands called 
Stratton's islands. It appears that an extensive fishing business 
was carried on at Black Point, in which Scottow had become in- 
terested, probably by furnishing supplies, and in the course of time 
Jocelyn had fallen heavily in debt to the merchant. Possession 
of the mortgaged property was given to Scottow in July, 1668, 
and in 1670, or about that time, he came to Scarborough to live. 2 
In 1671 he was licensed to sell wines and liquors to his fishermen 
and others. When the first Indian war began, in 1675, Captain 
Scottow succeeded in obtaining a detachment of troops from Bos- 
ton to defend his property at Black Point. Captain John Wincoll 
also came to the relief of Scarborough with the Kittery company 
of 60 men. In the fall of 1676, the place was deserted by the 
English inhabitants, but was speedily reoccupied. When the gov- 
ernment of Maine was reorganized in 1680, Captain Scottow was 
appointed one of Governor Danforth's councillors, and in 1681 he 
gave a lot of a hundred acres on the plains near the great pond 
for the site of a fort and of dwellings which might be occupied 
in safety near the fortification. The fort was built by the town. 
Captain Scottow was also one of the trustees to whom Governor 
Danforth, in 1684, confirmed the land within the town of Scar- 
borough for the benefit and use of the inhabitants and their suc- 
cessors. 3 In July, 1686, his son Thomas became deputy clerk and 
register of deeds for Maine under Edward Randolph who, as has 
been stated, had a royal commission as sole register in New Eng- 
land, by himself or his deputies. 4 In September, 1687, Joshua 
Scottow received from Governor Andros his commission as depu- 
ty judge of probate for Maine, and his son was appointed register 
of probate. Thomas was also admitted attorney of the inferior

court of common pleas in Maine about the same time. 1 His last 
record as register of deeds is dated April 14, 1689, four days be- 
fore the revolution in Boston. During the remainder of the year 
he remained at Scarborough, in command of the fort on the plains ; 
but in May, 1690, Fort Loyal at Falmouth fell, and thereupon the 
garrison at Black Point drew off to Wells. It was a dozen years 
before the settlement at Scarborough was revived, and in the in- 
terval both Scottows passed away. The father died January 20, 
1698, leaving his estate to his wife during her life, then a double 
portion to his son Thomas, and the rest equally to his daughters 
Elizabeth, Rebecca and Mary. What became of Thomas was un- 
known, until his will was recently discovered in England. It is 
described as follows : 

Will of Thomas Scottow, of Boston in New England, now bound forth 
on a voyage to sea in the ship Gerrard of London, Captain William Den- 
nis commander, 14 Nov. 1698, proved 4 Sept. 1699. To my loving sister 
Elizabeth Savage of New England aforesaid, all my real and personal es- 
tate in New England of what kind soever. To my loving friend Marga- 
ret Softly, of the parish of St. Paul, Shadwell, in the county of Middle- 
sex, widow, all and singular such moneys, salaries and wages whatsoever 
as is and shall become due to me for my service in said ship, to her own 
use in satisfaction of what I shall owe and be indebted unto her at my 
death, and I appoint her my executrix. 2 

Elizabeth Scottow, to whom her brother thus left his estate in 
New England, had married Thomas Savage in 1664. Their 
daughter, Lydia, married Timothy Prout, bringing to him her 
share of the Cammock patent. Her husband afterward bought 
the rest of the patent from the other heirs and removed to Scar- 
borough, and Black Point thus became and remains Prout's Neck. 3 

After the revolution of April, 1689, John Wincoll of Kittery 
was chosen clerk of the courts and recorder of the province of 
Maine, at York, on the 20th of December. Captain Wincoll was 
then about 67 years old. He came from Watertown, Massachu- 
setts, to Kittery, while still a young man, and was one of the sign- 
ers of the submission to the government of Massachusetts in 1652. 4 
The first representative of Kittery in the general court at Boston, 
in 1653, he was reelected in 1654 and 1655, and was also one of 
the selectmen of the town in 1654, and many times afterward. 
After his service as deputy in 1655, he appears to have returned

to Watertown for a time. At any rate he sat for Watertown in 
the general court for 1658, and in an extensive timber grant 
from the town of Kittery in 1659, he is described as John Wincoll 
of Watertown. 1 This grant conveyed to him the right to cut 
timber above Salmon falls on the great Newgewanac river to the 
northern boundary of the town and three miles from the river 
eastward into the woods. Having secured this privilege he built 
two saw mills at Salmon falls, where he lived for many years. He 
was aided in this enterprise by Thomas Broughton, a Boston mer- 
chant, who had previously been interested in a mill at Sturgeon 
creek, where Wincoll bought a house and land in 1651. 2 In 1676, 
a fourth part of the property and rights at Salmon falls was con- 
veyed to George and John Broughton, sons of Thomas, to satisfy 
their claim. Appointed a justice of the peace by John Archdale 
in behalf of Ferdinando Gorges, in 1663, Wincoll was reappoint- 
ed to the same dignity by the royal commissioners who in 1665 
overthrew the short-lived Gorges government. After the author- 
ity of Massachusetts was restored, in 1668, Wincoll remained in 
private life for a season in consequence of his acceptance of office 
from the obnoxious royal commissioners ; but from 1671 to 1686 
he was continuously in the magistracy — associate of York county 
from 1671 to 1680, justice of the peace in Governor Danforth's 
council from 1680 till 1686. He was again deputy for Kittery to 
the general court in 1675, 1677 and 1678. He was also for many 
years town surveyor ; a large part of the real estate in Berwick 
was platted by him, and be was often employed as referee in the 
division of important properties, such as the Lewis and Bonython 
patent at Saco in 1680 and the Shapleigh estate in Kittery in 1684. 
As early as 1670, he was captain of the Kittery company. In Oc- 
tober, 1675, while he was with his company at Scarborough, which 
was beset by Indians, his house at Salmon falls was burned by the 
enemy. In the second Indian war when the greater part of the 
settlement at Salmon falls was burned by a party of French and 
Indians in March, 1690, CajDtain Wincoll's house was twice assaul- 
ted but the enemy were beaten off by six or seven men who were 
within. 8 On the 1st of November, 1692, Wincoll was reappoint- 
ed clerk of York county under the new Massachusetts charter, 
and in 1693, when the probate court was reorganized, he was ap- 
pointed register. He continued to serve as clerk of courts and

register of deeds and of probate until October 22, 1694, when he 
was killed by a fall from his horse. 1 

Joseph Hammond of Kittery was appointed clerk and register 
to succeed Wincoll, Dec. 4, 1694. He was born in Wells, in 1647 
or 1648, the second son of William Hammond, who died in 1702 
at the extraordinary age of 105. 2 His son Joseph was born in 
1678. Joseph Hammond, senior, settled in Kittery. He was a 
carpenter, 8 but as skilful with a pen as with the tools of his trade. 
In 1692 he was chosen town clerk, and the Kittery records show 
a marked improvement after they came into his hands. He was 
interested in military matters too, and in 1695 had risen to the 
rank of major. In July of that year, he was captured by Indians 
near Saco fort and taken to Canada. Count Frontenac, the 
French governor, respecting the prisoner's rank, it is said, treated 
him with great kindness, and he was exchanged and sent home, 
arriving in Maine after an absence somewhat less than six 
months. 4 From 1698 till 1703, and again in 1705, he was a mem- 
ber of the governor's council. 5 In June, 1700, he was appointed 
a judge of the county court of common pleas, to fill a vacancy 
caused by the death of Samuel Wheelwright. It appears to have 
been the practice at that time to select one of the four judges of 
common pleas forjudge of probate. At any rate Francis Hooke 
and Samuel Wheelwright had filled both offices simultaneously and 
Hammond succeeded Wheelwright in both capacities. In 1707 
he was appointed commissioner of oyer and terminer to try Jo- 
seph Gunnison for murder. He died Feb. 24, 1710. Joseph Ham- 
mond, junior, was 22 years old in 1700, and was then appointed 
clerk and register, succeeding in after life to others of his father's 
dignities. 6 Both were men of good repute, esteemed by all who 
knew them. 

John Newmarch, whose name figures in the records as clerk and 
register in September, October and November, 1695, was a young 
minister at Kittery, temporarily appointed to fill Hammond's place 
during the major's involuntary journey to Canada. Newmarch

years, but gives no dates. Palfrey is undoubtedly right. 

6 It has been supposed, by reason of the identity of the names, that the elder Hammond 
was register of deeds until 1710, when he died; but a careful examination of the records 
shows that he retired from the office in 170 >, soon after his appointment to the bench. The 
writing of father and son is much alike, and the signature remains " Joseph Hammond, 
register," instead of "Joseph Hammond, Jr.," as might have been expected.

belonged to an Ipswich family and was a graduate of Harvard 
college in 1690. 1 

With these facts and dates in mind, it becomes possible to un- 
ravel the snarl in which the York records between 1684 and 1700 
were left. Those records are scattered through three volumes, 
the fourth, fifth and sixth in the registry of deeds. The fourth 
was opened by Rishworth in 1684 and continued by him regularly 
till June, 1686. The fifth had been opened by Rishworth in July, 
1680, as a special record of probate business, which had not be- 
fore been separated from the ordinary proceedings of the courts 
and records of conveyances. In this book he not only recorded 
current probate business but transcribed earlier records from time 
to time, so that finally he had completed a record of probate pro- 
ceedings for ten years, from 1676 to 1686. Scottow, beginning in 
July, 1686, continued the record of deeds in the fourth book and 
added an inventory to the probate record in the fifth book. But 
in February, 1687, Scottow opened a new volume for deeds, now 
the sixth, and in September of the same year, opened what is now 
the first book of probate records. The fourth and sixth books of 
deeds were in Scottow's keeping, probably at Scarborough. The 
fifth, a probate record, for which Scottow had no further use, ap- 
pears to have remained at York. It has been supposed that Scot- 
tow perhaps resided and kept his records in Boston during his term 
of office 2 ; but that is doubtful. After he left college in 1677, he 
often witnessed deeds executed at Scarborough, and the probability 
is, that he lived there constantly with his father. 3 The earlier 
records were removed to Boston, in pursuance of the order issued 
by Governor Andros in May, 1687, but the current volumes re- 
mained with the deputy register at Scarborough, and the forgotten 
fifth book with Rishworth at York. Thomas Scottow, as has been 
stated, commanded the fort at Black Point in 1689. When the gar- 
rison withdrew in 1690, the Scarborough records were carried to 
Boston for safety, 4 and Scottow's Maine records of course went 
with the town books. Meanwhile Wincoll had been appointed clerk 
and register, and he, searching for a record book, came upon Rish- 
worth's fifth volume. He continued the probate record as a gen- 
eral record of deeds ; and turning the book upside down, began 
at the other end a court record. Having this double character,

the volume may be claimed with equal reason by the register of 
deeds, or by the clerk of courts, who in fact had possession of it 
for a long time, as appears by the following passage from a sched- 
ule prepared by Jeremiah Goodwin, register, in 1816, when the 
records were carried to Alfred : 

On the following day [May 4, 1816] received ninety-two Books of Ee- 
cords, & the Alphabets belonging to the same, numbered from one to 
ninety- three, excepting number five, which is in the Clerk's Office, as 
also, numerous files of deeds &c. all of which were removed to Alfred. 

Among Wincoll's records, are three orders of the county court 
with regard to the records which had been carried away to Bos- 
ton. At a court of sessions at York, Nov. 1, 1692, — 

This Court orders Jn° Wincoll y e Clarke to take the records of this 
County into his Custody that are with M r Hutchinson in Boston and to 
pervse them as occasion may require. ^ 

This Mr. Hutchinson is probably Major Elisha Hutchinson, who 
had recently been commander-in-chief of the troops serving in 
Maine. He was the grandson of the celebrated Ann Hutchinson, 
and the grandfather of Governor Hutchinson, the historian of 
Massachusetts. His wife was a daughter of Mrs. Bridget San- 
ford, afterward Bridget Phillips, of Saco ; and Hutchinson was 
one of the number to whom Major Phillips in 1676 granted the 
famous nineteen thousand acres in the township now called San- 
ford. He was a member of the Massachusetts council after the 
revolution of 1689 until he died in 1717, serving two years, 1708 
and 1709, as a representative of Maine in that board. 1 With his 
special interest in Maine, it is not unlikely that he may have taken 
possession of the Maine records in Boston after Andros was de 
posed. They were not immediately returned, however. The 
court at Wells, Oct. 3, 1693, passed this order: 

Vpon Complaint of Dyuers persons for want of the records It is or- 
dered that the Clarke of the court shall goe to Boston for the records that 
are with M r Hutchinson and with Captain Scottow, takeing the aproba- 
tion of his Exelency and Councill. 

The clerk's mission appears to have been successful, for on the 
2d of January following, 1694, the following order was adopted: 

1 1 Williamson's Maine, 680. 



16 Preface. 

Whereas there is great Complaint for want of the records this Court 
with the advice of the grand Jury doe order that the records of this 
County which are at Boston shall be speedily sent for and brought to 
Leuit. William Fernald's House vppon his Island and kept till further 
order and y e Clarke of this Court to fetch them as soone as may be and 
the Sheriff to Deliver him thirty shillings to pay for the bookes in Cap* 
Scottows hands which are a part of the County records. 

Lieutenant Fernald was a son of Reginald Fernald, surgeon, 
who was sent over to Piscataqua in 1631 by John Mason. The 
war was still raging in 1694, and the books were probably left on 
Fernald's island for greater security. In October following, Win- 
coll died. His successor continued the court record in the fifth 
book to 1699, and the deeds until January, 1696. Then he went 
back to the fourth book, which had been returned from Boston, 
and filled the blank pages with deeds until July, 1699, skipping in 
August to the blank pages of the sixth book, opened by Scottow. 
The record of deeds Js continued in the sixth book by the younger 
Hammond, to February, 1702. 

The volume now printed is the last of the four brought out by 
the aid of the State under the resolve of March 15, 1883. It has 
been shown that in order to complete the printing of the 17th 
century records in the York registry of deeds, the fifth and sixth 
books should be included in the series. It has also been proved 
by actual experiment, that the cost of printing these useful docu- 
ments cannot be met by private subscriptions. It is hoped, there- 
fore, that the State will provide at least for the printing of the 
two volumes described above. 

This fourth book, like its predecessors, contains much interest- 
ing historical matter, — some circumstances of the last days of 
George Cleeve's only child, Mrs. Elizabeth Harvey ; a dozen pages 
about Richard Wharton's title at Pejepscot, derived from Thom- 
as Purchase and others ; Danforth's commission to George Pear- 
son and others to lay out North Yarmouth and assign lots to the 
inhabitants ; testimony concerning Robert Jordan's suit in 1615 
against Richard Vines, and his attachment of Saco Neck and 
judgment thereon ; testimony concerning Robert Nanny's suit 
against Gorges in 1647, and attachment of Gorges point in York, 
and the manner in which Nanny's title was set aside by President 
Danforth nearly forty years afterward 1 ; a trace of Henry Joce-

lyn's life at Pemaquid, in 1680 ; a conveyance by Robert Tufton 
Mason in 1687, of 500 acres in Kittery, under the title conveyed 
by Gorges to John Mason in 1635, in the deed discovered by Wm. 
M. Sargent, Esq., and printed in his introduction to the second 
book of York Deeds. All these documents will be readily found 
by the help of the indexes. 

Acknowledgment must again be made to Mr. Sargent for his 
valuable services in coj)ying the text of the records and preparing 
the indexes. The contractions in the text are explained in the 
preface to the first book.
